I want to change the filter on my broan 42000-k range hood. filter number 97006931, never done it before. help?


Look at this exploded view:

http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/hvac/broan/423601.html

Part number 11 is a retainer clip.

Here is the instruction manual:

http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/content/pdfs/137548-2.pdf

Page five, illustration 13, shows that the retainer clip is turned 90 degrees to release the filter, turned back to retain the replacement.

Here's a cut and paste of the manual:

"FILTERS
40000, 42000 & 42000D Hoods Only:
Remove aluminum filter by turning filter retainer to
one side. (FIG. 13) Filter should be washed once a
month in a hot detergent solution. Aluminum filters
are dishwasher safe. When installing filter, make sure
that filter slides under retaining tabs on back of fan
housing. Turn filter retainer so that arrows on retainer
point toward front and back of hood."

I have a viking Professional range hood. While


FLASH covers a multitude of possibilities. What is the voltage of the blower motor. What you are describing often happens when 220 is wired to a 110 lighting circuit. I would not be running the blower motor although I hope it has inherent built in motor protection. If the voltage is applied higher to light bulbs they become flash bulbs. Florescents can become fire fixtures fast. If you are not an electrician back away from this and disconnect power at your breakers. Do not open up and trouble shoot if you are not qualified so you do not get embarrassed and have a dirt nap. It only takes about 40 vo;ts and a few milliamps cross chess to kill you. Also when ever you turn something on start and keep the habit of using one hand to turn it on and one hand to grab your pants behind you. OK OK or skirt. This prevents a cross chest shock . Old Navy (USN) death defeating rule that sved me many times and still. Remember call a pro when you do not know .

I have a Domotec Cooker Hood, the switch that turns on the various speeds for the fan appears broken. Is it possible to get replacement switches?


It looks like Domotec has a facility in Wiltshire. The e-mail address is service@domotec.uk.com, and the phone number is 01249813835. I couldn't find any parts dealers here in the US, but I am sure there is a local dealer in your area that either carries a direct replacement or a generic replacement that may do.

Fan and lights come on and go off all day long on their own


We installed our Broan-Allure range hood about ten years ago. On three seperate occasions since, the fan has randomly turned on and none of the control buttons would turn it off. After a while it turns itself off. During those same times, when you turned the lights on, they would blink before finally staying on. On each occasion, I have removed the screens and metal underpieces to gain access to the circut board. Once you can see the circut board, remove and replace the 3 Amp fuse that is mounted on the board. (Radio Shack part # 270-1054)...even if the fuse looks good, replace it. Each time this has work for about three years, then it acts up again..

Had same problem & fuse fixed it.
Before buying a new control board (approx $160), check the 3 amp fuse located on the inside of the vent on the control board. You have to take the light/bottom housing & black plastic air chute off to see control board/fuse.

Fan Not Working


Sounds like a motor problem...but not necessarily. Cut power to the unit. Expose the motor assembly. Turn the fan by hand...if it is jammed or hard to turn...replace that motor. Not that? There is likely a motor connector. Get a test light at the hardware store. Disconnect the motor and then probe the wires coming to the connector from the power side (with the power on again) to see if the tester glows. Yes...bad motor. No, find the bad connection. It is possible that this unit uses a multi switch...if that's the case, there will be three wires coming out of it...One is power in...the others go to the light and the fan. Then, the switch will be the culprit. Hope this helps.
